. >> something you were saying about reality -- we saw the october surprise, super storm sandy, natomas is spending the campaign, but also the -- not only suspending the campaign, but also the bloomberg endorsement. many were looking over the right shoulder in terror -- if you acknowledge that climate is a real -- yesterday, for the five members of congress went to defeat. because they were targeted for taking anti-science positions in independent districts. is the as starting to melt them apart in the republican party on climate science? is there an opening for the president and the administration to move more boldly? >> it is sandy a turning point in this discussion or not? >> the whole discussion of climate change has become so polarized that i think, if we can address some of our economic challenges, some of our immigration challenges, there are a whole host of things on the priority list to overcome all that. right now, it has become so divisive that i will look for any immediate move on that particular issue. >> the santa barbara oil spill was a galvanizing change. >> i think ther
3. >> update on the response to hurricane sandy. >> afternoon, everybody. i will be brief because i figure you got more questions. some of the highlights from the last couple of days. as of this morning, around 6:00 a.m., and we will have numbers later this afternoon be looked at you, but 317,000 folks have registered in the three states for individual assistance. and a total of -- is three had a 20 million for the three states. the yesterday northeaster had impacts appeared in many cases precautionary measures were taken to shut down operations. there was concern about that, but it was based on the forecast the day before when decisions were made, said those were done in coordination with state and local officials. power outages increased slightly. power outages due to the nor'easter did increase the number of customers without power, and as of this morning, about 42,000 people in addition to those who have lost power from sandy are reported out. that number is down from the original impacts of the northeastern, but we continue to cede power restoration. the numbers improved. with
's touring statent island and other locations in the wake of the cleanup and aftermath of hurricane sandy. when that video becomes available, we'll take you there live. while we wait for that, we'll bring you a portion of this morning's "washington journal." host: independent vermont senator bernie sanders joins us from capitol hill this morning. thank you for being with us. and to get started here's a question. should democrats be ready to walk away from the bargaining table as you and the congress address this fiscal cliff? should democrats be willing to say if we can't get what we want we are willing to go over the cliff? guest: i think all of us want to make sure, want to do everything that we can to see that the fiscal cliff is avoided. but i think what we have seen in the past is a level of obstructionism on the part of republicans who said hey it's either my way or the identifyway. election vs. consequences. democrats want -- elections have consequences. democrats won. democrats won 25 out of 33 seats in the senate. they won seats in the house. one of the key issues during that cam
. after the first campaign, romney was ahead for a it little bit. around halloween, the sandy news started to kick in. president obama went ahead by point or less. do you see sandy play in? >> it robbed the challenger. it brought them for 3 or four days, six news cycles. the core issue was the economy. he wasn't able to get that message through for a few days. to some voters, it probably reminded some voters that this guy is reaching across party lines and reaching to the governor from new jersey. they're sitting in for the first time. i think it did help obama by freezing things for a few days and giving him that commander in chief aura. >> there is an important role that the federal government plays. romney and paul ryan talked about the government needs to get out of the way. >> romney specifically said he would cut fema. >> the last thing people want when catastrophe strikes is the government to get out of the way. >> some people remember obama came in in the middle of a crisis and he was cool headed. they were reminded that this guy doesn't react as much emotionally as we like to saee

seeing tapering off. the week before hurricane sandy. lot of people say sandy killed him. i think it was more icing on the cake. but he really did engage a bunch of voters that had not been paying attention. it really put the race in play, but not quite enough. i will talk about but more and a couple minutes. the simplest thing, how we looked at it. in the senate, we saw a couple of outstanding races, but what seems to happen is there were 10 tossup races and become a down to, what is it? montana and north dakota? if they both go democratic -- if they both go republican it will have won seven out of 10. it goes to reinforce something that we already knew. when you get down to that last group of tossups senate races, they never break down the middle. they tend to break even, two- thirds one way, one-third of the other. it is whatever the gust of wind is. it could have been sandy related, maybe not. what ever happened, the use of them break either seven out of 10 or nine out of 10 in favor of republicans. it held up enormously. this, i think their team had a far better night than an
everybody's doing well. >> the impact of superstorm sandy on telecommunications attems, tonight on 8:0c-span2 8:00. >> "washington journal" continues. . host: matt lewis is senior contributors at "the daily caller." guest: good morning. host: there's a page in the washington journal and it shows governor bobby jindal of louisiana and governor mcconnell of virginia. guest: the republican party needs to do two things simultaneously that seem to be opposite. one is to be more cosmopolitan. if you look at republicans who have done well at appealing, it's people like ronald reagan. of course a movie actor who could go talk to elites in washington and the ec but also had a populist appeal. reagan democrats in pennsylvania and ohio, blue- collar workers, he could resonate with them. it's fair to say this of mitt romney, and he did not have a populist appeal. just by virtue of who he is, his biography, and his demeanor. mitt romney's brand was always going to be rich republican guy and it did end up that way. host: the morning after the election, you were one of the people who call for changes
view, katrina, you saw it, sandy give some impetus to dealing with climate change. i said, in new york, we will pay for climate change one way or another. we can pay for it after each natural disaster -- in new york, we have had three or 4100-year disasters -- or four 100-year disasters. irene, sandy. it will give some impetus to deal with climate change. even if we cannot reach compromise on that, there are lots of things that we can reach compromise on and that would be on the agenda. the fourth thing i put on the agenda, i talked about earlier in reference to your question. maybe we can get some real financial reform. republicans are beginning to rethink super pacs. they have not produced the positive results they hope for and they have produced negative results that they did not expect. >> if a deal is reached before the end of the year, does that remove the need for tax reform, more comprehensive tax reform next year? >> my view is that corporate tax reform should be treated separately. why? to make corporate tax reform work, you should not have revenue increases. you are putting

's washington journal, federal spending for hurricane sandy relief. after that, jerry had angstrom-- hagstrom on the future of the farm bill. plus your e-mails, phone calls, and wheatweets. the woodrow wilson center hosted a discussion tuesday on the challenges in the middle east for u.s. foreign policy. you can see it live starting at noon eastern here on c-span. president obama met with congressional leaders last week to discuss a plan for avoiding the fiscal clef. the ceo of the nasdaq stock market talks about the campaign, where he and other ceo's are willing to pay higher taxes as part of a deal to avert a fiscal close. he spoke for about an hour. >> good afternoon. i am vice chairman of brookings. i would like to welcome everyone today. good to see you. it is my great pleasure to welcome my colleague and friend to brookings. there is no doubt bob is an extraordinarily successful business executives. the value has increased by a factor of four. revenue has gone up to 1.7 billion. cash flow has gone up her year, and he has taken over the niche market and made it one of the most important
of hurricane sandy on the election. our polling showed there was an impact. our final poll showed obama with 57% and romney with 47%. we had a dead tie a week earlier. the only intervening events at that time was sandy and obama got 70% approval for his handling of the situation. a plurality of romney supporters also approved. i think in the end, it was modest. i don't think it really to hit one way or the other. i think obama had been edging a little bit had prior to the hurricane. the last two debates, not as important as the first debate. never is, but obama had not only stemmed from the's momentum following the first debate but also had developed his own. in the end, it probably helped him. the atmospherics and symbols of chris christie embracing him, but it was on the margins. may have helped in the popular vote in the northeast. we did see a big swing 4 obama elite and northeast. in our final poll, he was ahead even more. >> whenever a president can appear presidential, it's good. >> multiple other things can help him. michael bloomberg's endorsement which technically was not exactly stor

one in the new jersey newspaper, after the election and hurricane sandy, millions still left powerless. our hearts go out to those that are still without electricity up in the five boroughs and new jersey shore. hopefully they are pulling it together now. the other a reverend, i heard was, hey, the chair won. after the republican convention and everything else. without asking you voted for, let me pull the audience to. how many of you thought the election results were mostly positive? there you go. how many mostly negative? and how many too soon to tell? that is a good barometer of our audience tonight. as a challenge to the panel, abraham lincoln in the start of his campaign in 1858 said, a house divided cannot stand. reference to the nation -- nature of the republic back then. how divided are we, where are the lines? both candidates promise bipartisan progress. facing the challenges of a nation at home and abroad. can the winner possibly deliver? i would put that board as a challenge not just to the president by congress as well. tammy resolved extraordinary good but we are now facin

and affirmed by the tragedy in the northeast with hurricane sandy. secondly, we all believe a in the context of this that the human investment programs that support and sustain the working class and poor americans should not be the sacrificial lamb in any discussions. those programs have already been cut, been reduced to an extent. we are very unified in our thinking. thirdly and finally, we stand here, yes, as representatives of the organizations and the constituencies that we work for. we stand here as americans with a sincere hope the men and women in this city can find common ground. we know they can find common ground if they all exercise good will. if they exercise a commitment to common ground. we think that is one of the most important messages. a sincere feeling that we expect leaders to find common ground. we think the president for having us today and his out reach efforts have been extraordinary. i will introduce sister and then janet and we will go from there. >> i am sister samone. you probably know me -- it was a big honor to be in the meeting today. i think what i take away i
